Sherman's Cave

at metres

Description:

Accommodation: 10

Sherman's Cave is a fairly deep, low overhang which can easily accommodate 10 hikers.




4
COMFORT

Most of the floor area is level, but the roof is quite low and requires some stooping!


4
WATER

A small, reliable stream runs below the cave, and this can be reached quite easily by contouring back to the main path.


1
POOLS

There are no pools in the immediate vicinity of the cave, but a couple of waterfalls make for an adequate wash after a hard day's walk.


3
SHELTER

Because of its low roof, Sherman's Cave provides good shelter from the rain, but it is fairly exposed to wind.  Bearing in mind that it is just off the main path to Cathedral Peak, one can expect very little privacy, and there are no guarantees against theft by passersby while out climbing the peak.


2
OUTLOOK

The cave overlooks a narrow valley and the hillside beyond.  This is a mostly uninteresting view and not much more can seen without venturing further up the main path towards Cathedral Peak.
